Death penalty news and notes
- From Georgia, this story details that former First Lady Rosalynn Carter has "joined the call for a moratorium that would put the use of the death penalty in Georgia on hold."
- From Iowa, this story details that a proposal to adopt the death penalty for certain murders has moved forward in the state House Judiciary Committee, but appears to lack sufficient support in the state Senate to gain passage.
- From Oregon, pieces here and here follow-up on the Supreme Court's ruling this week in Guzek (details here) and suggest the defendant may have another decade worth of appeals before facing execution for a murder committed in 1987.
Karl Keys over at Capital Defense Weekly also has this review of an amazing week that was.
